  • Awesome mid to easy walk alone the shoreline on a well paved and maintained path. It was very cold, wind chill at -18, so we only walked it once!!!!  more »
  • My favorite beach in Maine. Beautiful sandy beach. Ocean is fun to swim and nice for walking the shore line.  more »
  • Being there put of season, the beach was quiet, but interesting. The colors were expressive and birds in abundance. For collectors, there were some striking deep blue shells on the beach.  more »

  • Super long beach, very nice white sand. It's like two beaches in one, at low tide you can walk 200 yards to the ocean, at high tide, it leaves just a skinny strip of white sand. Parking costs money but it's worth spending a few hours here.
  • gr8 for sun rises. To find a parking lot may be pain, just look around or being patient.
  • Beautiful beach, crowded during high tide but always room regardless - worth the visit
  • 20$ parking. But free 30 min stays to see the view and go. Water is too cold for swimming but wadding is fun
  • This is a beautiful beach even during the colder months of the year! I visited on a sunny but chilly October afternoon and the place was pretty much empty - you'll have the beach all to yourself and you can peacefully stroll along the shore, enjoying the white sand and the beauty of the Atlantic merging with the sky above!
